Microcosm by Christopher Domakis, a photographer based in Berlin, Germany, is a photo series that documents the fast changing landscape of Chinese suburbs. Each image in the series has one big thing in common, it juxtaposes large open areas with cluster of high rises, a sight that is only seen in megacities.

Expansive and breathtaking in a subtle way, Microcosm by Christopher Domakis essentially captures the places where most of the arriving new residents will be staying in order to make a living. China in itself is a unique country since it boasts a whopping one billion population. Domakis writes, "Huge development areas with lots of massive residential "towers" and enormous separated complexes of buildings, at the scale of a district, represent the current face and (sometimes) surreal scenery of Chinese housing at the edge of a city."
